A factory makes tennis rackets and cricket bats. A tennis racket takes 1.5 hours of machine time and 3 hours of craftman’s time in its making while a cricket bat takes 3 hour of machine time and 1 hour of craftman’s time. In a day, the factory has the availability of not more than 42 hours of machine time and 24 hours of craftsman’s time.
(i) What number of rackets and bats must be made if the factory is to work at full capacity?
(ii) If the profit on a racket and on a bat is Rs 20 and Rs 10 respectively, find the maximum profit of the factory when it works at full capacity. [CBSE 2011]
Let the number of rackets and the number of bats to be made be x and y respectively.
The machine time available is not more than 42 hours.
∴ 1.5x +3y ≤ 42
The craftsman`s time is not available for more than 24 hours
∴ 3x + y ≤ 24
The factory is to work at full capacity
∴ 1.5x + 3y = 42
3x + y = 24
Where x and y ≥ 0
Solving the two equations we get x= 4 and y = 12
Thus 4 rackets and 12 bats must be made
(i) The given information can be complied in the tables form as follows
The profit on a racket is Rs 20 and on bat is Rs 10
Maximize, Z = 20x +10y ………………1
Subject to constraints
1.5x + 3y = 42
3x + y = 24
x, y ≥ 0
the feasible region determined by the system of constraints is:
The corner points are A(8,0) , B(4, 12) , C(0, 14) and O(0,0)
The values of Z at these corner points are as follows:
Thus the maximum profit of the factory is when it works to its full capacity is Rs200.

A manufacturer produces two products A and B. Both the products are processed on two different machines. The available capacity of the first machine is 12 hours and that of the second machine is 9 hours per day. Each unit of product A requires 3 hours on both machines, and each unit of product B requires 2 hours on the first machine and 1 hour on the second machine. Each unit of product A is sold at ` 7 profit and that of B at a profit of ` 4. Find the production level per day for maximum profit graphically.Mathematics - Board Papers
A retired person wants to invest an amount of ₹ 50,000. His broker recommends investing in two types of bonds ‘A’ and ‘B’ yielding 10% and 9% return respectively on the invested amount. He decides to invest at least ₹ 20,000 in bond ‘A’ and at least ₹ 10,000 in bond ‘B’. He also wants to invest at least as much in bond ‘A’ as in bond ‘B’. Solve this linear programming problem graphically to maximize his returns.Mathematics - Board Papers
A manufacturing company makes two types of teaching aids A and B of Mathematics for class XII. Each type of A requires 9 labour hours of fabricating and 1 labour hour for finishing. Each type of B requires 12 labour hours for fabricating and 3 labour hours for finishing. For fabricating and finishing, the maximum labour hours available per week are 180 and 30 respectively. The company makes a profit of Rs80 on each piece of type A, and Rs120 on each piece of type B. How many pieces of type A and type B should be manufactured per week to get a maximum profit? Make it as an LPP and solve graphically. What is the maximum profit per week?Mathematics - Board Papers
